Monstera deliciosa
  Monstera deliciosa March 02, 2014
edible fruit. a fruity taste similar to jackfruit and pineapple. The unripe green fruits can irritate the throat and the latex of the leaves and vines can create rashes in the skin, because both contain potassium oxalate: that is the reason why the fruits have to be consumed when the scales lift up. The fruit may be ripened by cutting it when the first scales begin to lift up and it begins to exude a pungent odor. It is wrapped in a paper bag and set aside until the scales begin popping off.

Cantaloupe
  Cantaloupe September 25, 2011

The fruit is usually kept from directly touching ground to help prevent rot. This can be achieved by putting cardboard, straw or blocks of wood under the fruit, or by trellising the plant. When trellised, the fruit must be support Cantaloupe
